Coronavirus: China rejects call for probe into origins of disease


China on Friday rejected calls for an independent international investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus, BBC reported. Chen Wen, a top Chinese diplomat in the United Kingdom, told the news network that the demands for such an inquiry were “politically motivated”.

“We are fighting the virus at the moment, we are concentrating all our efforts on fighting against the virus,” Chen said. “Why talk about an investigation into this? This will divert not only attention, it will divert resources. This is a politically motivated initiative, I think no one can agree on this…It would serve nobody any good.”
